When God Interferes

If there exists anything as a tussle between the almighty God and the devil over who wins over the most souls then God is not playing fair, and it’s all to our advantage. I used to think; well God did His part- he created everything, now He seats back in His throne watching down over us waiting for judgement day to unleash His wrath upon those who sin against Him. But the choice to do good or evil is entirely upon us, yet sometimes we do that we which our hearts do not desire to do just because we are entrapped in sin (the work of the devil perhaps), right? And sometimes God gets sick of it and can’t take it anymore so he swoops in and delivers us from evil, if you are willing. And that’s when I see the devil crying foul rushing before God’s presence like- he was totally going to give in to the temptations if it weren’t for your meddling, it’s not fair! Didn’t you give them freewill?

If God were fair… to the devil, He wouldn’t have sent His only son to die for us (if you believe in the Bible like I do) and we would all go to hell! Frankly, I think that’s what sinners deserve, I deserve hell but God said no! I’m going to make a way for Wyndago to be redeemed, I can’t let him go to waste. And why? I have no desire to understand it further than to just know that He loves me, period. Of what use am I to God? Ptch, I have been redeemed and there is way for me to be made pure of my sins, that’s all I need to know.

God interfered in my life, He probably has many times but this time I was conscious about it being the hand of God at work. I was ensnared by the devil and right when I was about to give in the fight He showed- true story. He said, you need to think this through and come back to your senses, you’re only going to hurt yourself and I’m not going to be there for you when choose to go down that road, kinda like what He did with Saul, I mean Paul… the guy who killed Christians, that one. Then the devil went like “arrgh, drat, not again! Are we having a contest or not?” Thank God we are not Job, that man had it bad.

I apologize for going all church on you on this one, but it is what it is. There is only one way to live, the sooner you find out how the better for you… forever. Or maybe I shouldn’t be sorry for this, okay I am… probably, maybe.


No Secret

There is a reason why we act the way we act when we react to actions when we actually reenact what we saw, thought or the notions we received telepathically. So by default it’s not your fault when you fall, its only nature taking its course. Freewill is a recourse few are willing to call on, choosing to adopt opinion and thoughts already thought up. It makes me sick to my stomach to encounter a rigid and stiff thoughter, no I mean thinker, who embraces his ignorance as the truth and accepts mediocrity as the real. Feel? I mean you feel me? Put yourself under the lens, identify the disease-causing germs then seize them by the arm, excuse me, by the erm… just seize them ‘fore they harm you! I act the way I act because I think the way I think, so I chose what to believe but yet I seek more to believe in. I’m cautious as I live, I’m courteous to my peers, I’m counting down my years, I’m reckless and sincere, but imperatively I am here!

Less stress my code, no worries ’bout nada shit pays a visit I let it talk to my God. That’s my lawyer my all that takes care of my living, if I need something it’s no problem at all. I don’t know the whole truth yet though, I handle one day at a go. Until that day when I have I have to go. I gave sacrifice of half a goat, the skies opened and it poured, had to build a boat. This is not your regular post this is a poem written in continuous prose. Now you see me now you don’t, that’s The Synctum‘s blog. I take a break but bounce right back in it.

I feel restless now that I’m all lawyered up, I just set the ladder against the wall. What’s breaking a couple of laws and having a few records? Flying without wings and being the first to do it meanwhile the devil heckles. A free spirit, happy-go-lucky individuals that won’t take no for an answer. We are not go-getters, we just show up to receive, no secret. I’m just part of the team so I play my part. I sit and wallow in my thoughts for hours thinking about how this whole world is ours. How lives are just like smoke when they fast disappear in thin air, does it make any sense?

That hard-headed maverick, screw what you thought.

Synctum Blogging 101

I like to write and it needs no telling but it just seems to me like a great post starter for this one so brace yourselves for how I’m about to bless you with another one of my pieces. In my eyes, there is a huge difference in my writing style (at least in the blogging arena) from when I began to write here, I think I found a plausible reason to keep writing here. I don’t write for the readers but I write with the readers in mind. I write because I find pleasure in organizing my thoughts and delivering them in a coherent and sometimes poetic fashion by use of the written word, that’s all. I admit, I am enthused every time I get new readers or my traffic stats hits a triple digit number in a day, but it doesn’t upset me when that does not happen. However, I love my readers regardless, lol.

So when I open the ‘Add New Post’ page I come in with a lot of zest and the sight of the page alone is a motivator. It speaks to me, it says Wyndago this is it, this is your playground begin to play. Most times I don’t know what I’m going to write about, I just open the page and stare. Countless ideas jet through my mind and I grab one and go with it, developing it as I go. Few times do I show up on my playground with things to write about in mind. Albeit I have noticed that when I have an idea of a post, it may not go away until I unleash it, the one you are reading now is one of them.

Over the years I have been blogging I formulated rules for myself along the way to guide me in my blogging. I compare myself with me so I don’t know about the rest, these are just my thoughts so please no lawsuits, lol. Ever since I found myself at the epicenter of controversy on Twitter I’m bound to be cautious about what I say in public but that’s a story for another day. Without any further ado, here are my blogging 101 tips, for me by me;

1. Keep It Short

This has been evident in most of my posts. This I came up with because I realized how hard it is to capture and hold on to a reader’s attention for long. That reader is me. I see myself when I read other blogs, for the long ones I can’t help scrolling down every now and then in the middle of reading just to check if the end is near. I want the reader to catch the concept of what I’m saying fast so he can move on to the next blog, he most likely has a long list of better blogs to read and less time at his disposal. But this is a nice blog to read no doubt about that, I know because I write it but you know what I mean. This keeping it brief tip is also convenient for me because I’m lazy and lack the patience to write a long one. I have something to say so I just want to blabber it out at once so I reckon it serves both me and the reader fine. I allow myself a range of 530-700 words per post.

2. Keep Your Private Life Private

I am careful not to reveal too much, this I started not too long ago. When I was growing up people used to have diaries, now they have blogs. I kept a diary too but I don’t want my blog to become my diary but rather a medium where I can dump my not-so-private thoughts and at the same time share them. A place to share my point of view and get feedback… that sounds about right I think.

3. Say Something

I fail at this sometimes but the idea is to have a theme and surround the whole post around it without being distracted into digressing to something else. I basically strive to have some sort of message or notion that I want to put across.

4 Break The Rules Occasionally

I had to throw this one somewhere because I’m past the 700 word mark. I do break the rules at times and that is part of the rules.

5. Have A Photo On Your Post

The rule says; thou shall have a photo on each post but ye is allowed up to two consecutive posts without photos after which the third one will by any means have a photo. This is to ensure that the homepage does not miss at least a photo at any given time since The Synctum displays three posts at a time, for aesthetic value.

Photos shall at all times be relevant. The rule goes ahead to state that; thou shall not have a white person’s photo on a post that is distinctively Kenyan, strictly for pertinence reasons, not racist. Talking about road rage on Kenyan roads and displaying a picture of a bunch of white folks squabbling in a traffic jam is rather conflicting to me (no pun intended). On that note, it is fair to add that photos of black people, let alone African, are hard to find on the internet if they are not celebrities.

That’s blogging 101 for you.
